With The Royals second season winding down and so long without word on a third season, we were beginning to get a little worried that E! wouldn’t renew one of our favorite guilty pleasures.
But fret not because E! has officially renewed The Royals for a 10-episode season 3.
“We are incredibly proud of the success of The Royals. The series has captured fans and brought them into a regal world of sexy, fun drama. We can’t wait to see what season 3 will bring and what surprises are still in store as we enter the second half of season 2,” Jeff Olde, EVP of original programming and development at E!, said in an announcement.
“We are delighted by today’s pick-up announcement for season three of ‘The Royals,’” said Kevin Beggs, Lionsgate Television Group Chairman. “The Royals reflects the kind of original, noisy and provocative series that is a Lionsgate signature. We look forward to an all-new season of palace intrigue and badly behaved royals with our partners at E! and Universal Cable Productions.”
The Royals penultimate episode airs this Sunday before the season 2 finale bows Sunday, Jan. 17 at 10/9c on E!
